I canīt understand why whe court and Ternert had to comment this? Sofia could have commented herself, if she wanted to stress out that her not going to the wedding didnīt have anything to do with the presence of Emma Pernald.
The times have changed - 6-7 years ago the court surely didnīt comment the life of Daniel Westling, Emma Pernald or Jonas Bergström...

Another PR fail on Terner's site. Where are the times when partners of the royal couples children were not commented on? As many like to stress out, Sofia & Chris are privat persons. Sofia could have commented on this issue herself if she felt the need. Gosh, I hope they get rid of Terner really soon, he does nothing good for them.

There is no way that the British Royal Court would comment on a private issue like this. I was very surprised when I read it, as it sort of confirms the situation and lays it open to even more discussion.

I think there used to be a saying that the BRF had - 'never complain, never explain'. It had its failings, but also had its advantages!

OK,this is an older post but I was reading through the thread...
I wanted to say something about tattoos on royals: Empress Elisabeth of Austria,Queen of Hungary was said to have a tattoo on her shoulder with the image of an anchor!But she was considered a "rebel" by the ppl of her time...I have only found German sources for this-http://www.sissi.de/forum/viewtopic.php?p=18433&sid=ec4bb4e779dadfd607781dd7f3ab3e5a
I understand Sofia is attracted to the Prince,I mean which girl wouldnīt run after him?We have seen other "unsuitable" princesses before-Mette-Marit changed her whole life to live up to the expectations of her husband and the public and I think she did very well,sheīs a real role model-she has made some mistakes but she has worked very very hard to overcome them and be a respectable woman and good wife Just think about Stephanie from Monaco and her singing career...in fact both Monegasse princesses had lived to the fullest when they were young and now they are doing well! So letīs see what Sofia is up to...

I'm no fan of Sofia's, but to suggest that she can "overcome" her past in the manner of the Monagasque princesses isn't much of a show of support. Caroline, IMO, would be a vastly different person if Stefano had not met an early and untimely death, but her expressions & demeanor at her brother's wedding don't indicate that everything is moonlight and roses in her world. Don't forget the now "second lady of the land" spread her legs for her supposed friend's husband, got pregnant, caused the official breakup of that marriage, married him herself, got to babysit his drunken, violent, boorish behavior for several years, then gets to live in this empty marriage while he perpetually cheats on her with younger women. Stephanie has a long string of failed marriages/relationships, children out of wedlock, usually looks lost/desperate/depressed, and thanks to too much sun (and perhaps some dabbling in chemicals IMO) looks twice her age. While they may sometimes be very nice people and while they may do very important charitable works, other than financially, they aren't "doing well" at all IMO.

In fact, these are exactly the types of women with whom I would expect Sofia to be enamored. Actually, tweeting about dating CP and funneling charity money into her personal bank account (unforgivable IMO) aside, since the relationship with CP started Sofia has behaved with more dignity than either of these two women. I don't know how you did it, blauerengel, but you actually have me defending Sofia....thanks...I think.

If things continue the way they are now, Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist will get married after Victoria and Daniel's baby is born. It might be true love or just sexual attaction and wish to shock from Carl Philip's part and and attraction to glamour and money from Sofia's part. Only time will tell. All we can do is wait and see.

Sofia Hellqvist has visited the Stockholm Pilates Center on the 16th August, she took some clothes of Drop of Mindfulness there. They discussed about a co-operation in the future.

I find it strange that of all the rumours the Royal Court could have responded to, this is the one they choose.

People have been talking for months about Princess Madeleine not liking Sofia and we don't hear any denials. One little blurb about CP & Sofia not going to a wedding and suddenly we're getting an official statement?

What you have said could well be true. No engagment or marriage will occur before Victoria and Daniel's baby is born, because it will take the shine away from them. Who knows maybe Carl Philip and Sofia could get engaged in the late spring of next year and marry in the late summer or early autumn?

Is this supposed to be interesting news? I find it funny how she's always ready for any photo op and smiling straight into the cameras when photographers are around, while the royals pay no attention to photographers.

And there is no rift between Sofia and Emma, according to Ternert.
- They have a good relationship.

Oh please! We know darn well that the reason CP and Sofia didn't go is because Emma was going to be there. Do you really think that Emma - who was with CP for an entire decade - wants to hang around this new girl? Anyone being honest with themselves knows that this would not be a comfortable situation.

Thats what I was saying
You have to be honest with yourself to admit something like that.

Well,sheīs been working as a model so of course sheīs not camera-shy ;-)
Other people feel uncomfortable when they are surrounded by photographers or just donīt care about it but Sofia is probably trying to leave a good impression.

on Sofia Hellqvist - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I read that ->Between September and October 2009, Hellqvist travelled to Ghana and did volunteer work, helping to build a women's center.
This is good work,it shows her commitment to help other people who are not that fortunate and that sheīs not as shallow as it may seem.
Does anyone know what subject she was studying?

I'd probably agree about her "commitment to help other people" if Sofia's journey to Ghana had not happened on the heels of accidentally-on-purpose bumping into a certain Prince outside of a nightclub...after stalking around the entrance having heard that he partied there from time to time.

She needed and wanted to "class up" her CV, and not be seen for who and what she is...a down market reality TV actress and soft porn model, desperate for fame by any means necessary.

Interesting or not, I don't think it's very strange she was looking straight at the camera. I mean, one can see those were posed photos and, following the example you gave, the royals, while posing for photos, do pay attention to photographers.

Everyone of them is an "opportunist". Daniel is an opportunist. Jonas wasn't smart enough. Camilla is, certainly, an opportunist. Everyone has their reasons. Royal marriages were often alliances. That was opportunism. She seems lovely, he seems smitten. Who are you to deny them this right?

But Daniel didnīt posed naked with snakes (I hope) and Camilla & Charles is another story. Sofia is one classic golddigger. Some find it okay, other like me are annoyed, another donīt care.

Thanks for the reply, blauerengel...and thanks for getting me back on track with this post. You only need to read through the early parts of this thread to get the full account of Sofia. In a nutshell, at the age of 15 or 16 she posed topless only covering herself with her arms, there are at least thirty pictures of her (and counting) posing in a bikini with her legs spread (she REALLY likes that post), at least one that suggests bondage, a full pictorial (spread legs included) with a large snake, at one point lived with an older man in the United States at which time she posed for a series of photographs completely naked and uncovered (all her bells and whistles showing). She later was a cast member on a trashy reality program. Then she met Prince Carl-Philip, they began dating (which she tweeted to everyone) and then began her charity work. Yes, she went to Ghana, but as she isn't even a d-list celebrity, it did not bring much attention outside of those who follow Carl-Philip's activities - and she made time to be photographed with children but I haven't seen any of her doing any work there. She and a partner "created" a charity lip gloss to raise funds for her charity, but any money raised was put into an account which was in Sofia's personal name....oh, and she was Miss Slitz (some Swedish men's magazine I think).

Basically the comparison to Putin and Sarkozy would be valid if they had posed for pictures with no pants on, then decided to enter politics (which has actually happened here in the U.S.!) but AFAIK that was not the case. True, Carla Bruni posed topless before, but her relationship and subsequent marriage to Sarkozy wasn't until after he was elected and quickly divorced his wife.
